Advent Day 17

The Wise Men

Read: Matthew 2:1-2

Special verses:  “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him. – Matthew 2:2

Discuss:  These wise men must have studied every star in the sky for years.  They knew each one.  So when a new, shining star appeared in the darkness, they knew it meant something BIG had happened!  They followed the star, traveling hundreds of miles for weeks on end, to find the baby king.  Listen (and sing along if you’d like) to the song We Three Kings.

Week 3 Craft Link:  See how to make a star sun catcher here.  Make sure a grown up does the baking and let the stars cool completely before kids touch them.
